Progress, not Perfection
Saturday, June 22, 2013
Well, Progress is what I'm making. It's going to take some time and I can see it through. Right down to the skinny jeans. I had a setback this week with a stomach bug for 3 days. Thought I would loose 2-3 pounds, but instead, I maintained. Couldn't eat anything the first day, ginger ale only. Day two was rice and Tea and ginger ale only. Woke up after midnight, with more nausea. Finally, after 3pm I felt better, and ate crackers. And felt energised to some degree. Then ate dinner. And snacked on popcorn. Ginger ale and tea with honey. So all the extra calories from honey and suger in the ginger ale, and lack of exercise, prevented me from losing another pound. But these were the only foods or drinks I could stomach. So, what do I do? Just accept what is, and move on.
Next week is a new week. Today after work, I can take a long walk, and same tomorrow. And get back into the game. I don't need to be perfect. I am not frustrated at not losing another pound this week, just accepting that being sick is a setback. I accept the progress I am making, and keep my head in the game. I don't have to strive for perfection. I will reach my health and weight loss goals, all in good time. And besides, this is only a stomach bug. People are overcoming major obstacles here. I am learning plenty from everyone. I will reach my goal, all in good time. I have a 4 month plan to get there, and I will.
Have a great weekend all
